Supoenaed in Texas, Sequestered in Memphis

01Sep08
The first thing I’ve learned in the now four hours that I’ve been a Southerner is that, living in the state nicknamed the Buckle of the Bible Belt, means that establishments that sell beer cannot sell wine and establishments that sell wine cannot sell beer. How very fascinating. And inconvenient.

Also, Nicole Kidman frequents a Thai and sushi restaurant just a few blocks away from my office.

Now it’s time to adjust to being on Central Time, lay out my professional clothing for the morning, and get ready to become an adult. Wish me luck.

  1. But can you buy gin, anywhere? This is the real question. As a Scottish jaikie, I orginally read this as “the Buckie of the bible belt” which obviously means something completely different.

    Good luck with your first day.xx
